NSA-PCS Student Awards and Scholarships

The Pacific Coast Section of NSA greatly values student participation at the annual PCSGA-NSA conference.  We provide student travel scholarships and awards for the best student presentations made at the meeting each year.   We also solicit donations for a silent auction at each meeting with resulting proceeds going towards our student awards and scholarships. 

The 2017 NSA-PCS best student presentation was awarded to David Madison from Oregon State University for his talk entitled “Bacteriophages significantly reduce larval oyster mortality caused by vibrio coralliilyticus” and the honorable mention went to Lisa Crosson from Oregon State University for her talk entitled “Potential transgenerational effects of ocean acidification and hypoxia on the fecundity of olympia oysters (Ostrea lurida)."  Both students received NSA-PCS memberships and cash awards.
